Modules are part of the lower division requirements for the Computational Biology Programme.
[2]
Science students will read CS1010S Programming Methodology (4 MCs) and CS1020E Data
Structures and Algorithms I (4 MCs) in fulfilment of their Breadth Requirements.
[3] ZB3288
UROPS in Computational Biology can be taken in fulfilment of 4MCs from any of the options
in the level-3000 elective list.
[4]
Students may wish to read PC2267 Biophysics I as an unrestricted elective module to meet the
prerequisites required for PC3267 Biophysics II (Level-3000 major elective module). Student without
computing background may wish to read LSM2241 as a preparatory course before reading CS2220.
* Students should choose the combined ST2131 and ST2132 in place of ST2334 if they plan to pursue
higher ST modules. ST2131 is a pre-requisite to ST2132.
